As a rock icon and filmmaker with a unique vision, ROB ZOMBIE has continuously challenged audiences as he stretches the boundaries of both music and film. He has sold more than fifteen million albums worldwide, and is the only artist to experience unprecedented success in both music and film as the writer/director of eight feature films with a worldwide gross totaling more than $150 million.
ROB ZOMBIE has achieved great success in the music industry, first as a member of the multi-platinum band WHITE ZOMBIE and later as a solo artist with even greater results collecting numerous multi-platinum and gold albums along the way including Hellbilly Deluxe, The Sinister Urge and Educated Horses. In 2013, the seven-time GRAMMY® nominee released his fifth solo album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, on his Zodiac Swan label through UMe. The album debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 and spawned two Top 10 Active Rock singles, “Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Super Town” and Zombie’s spin on GRAND FUNK RAILROAD’s anthemic “We’re An American Band.”
Rob Zombie’s first concert film, The Zombie Horror Picture Show, was released May 19 2015 by Zodiac Swan/UMe. The feature-length film held the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Music DVD chart for two consecutive weeks. Recorded live over two sizzling nights in Texas, The Zombie Horror Picture Show captures ZOMBIE's elaborate, multimedia production of mind-blowing SFX, animatronic robots, pyrotechnics, oversized LED screens and state-of-the-art light show combined with his powerhouse band featuring John 5, Piggy D and Ginger Fish. In April 2016, ZOMBIE released his 6th studio album, The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser. The album debuted at number six on the Billboard Top 200 making it the sixth consecutive release to debut Top Ten. Produced by Zeuss, it was recorded and mixed at Goathouse Studios. A full return to form by the rock icon, The Electric Warlock… features John 5 (Guitar), Piggy D (Bass) and Ginger Fish (Drums). October 2020 sees the release of the first new ZOMBIE track and video in over four years — “King Freak: A Crypt Of Preservation And Superstition” off of the forthcoming full-length album entitled The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy.
ROB ZOMBIE has proved an undeniable box office success with his re-imagining of John Carpenter’s Halloween in 2007, which premiered at #1, and 13 years later still holds the Labor Day Weekend box office record. Having breathed new life into the Halloween franchise, he also helmed Halloween 2 (Dimension), in August 2009, notably departing from the originals by delving into the ill-fated childhood of Michael Myers. Prior to that, ZOMBIE wrote and directed the 2004 cult favorite House of 1000 Corpses (Lionsgate) and its companion, 2005’s critically acclaimed The Devil’s Rejects (Lionsgate), which chronicles the mayhem of the psychopathic Firefly family. ZOMBIE returned to the family for the third installment in September of 2019 entitled 3 From Hell (Lionsgate, Saban Films).
In addition, ZOMBIE also developed his own comic book series into an R-rated animated feature, The Haunted World of El Superbeasto (Starz). In 2016, ZOMBIE premiered his
7th film, 31 (Saban Films), at Sundance Film Festival.
ROB ZOMBIE partnered with producer Jason Blum on The Lords of Salem, which premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival. A novel based on the film’s original story was also co-penned by ZOMBIE, and debuted on the New York Times Best Seller list.
For the past two decades ROB ZOMBIE has also directed dozens of music videos for himself as well as other artists including Ozzy Osbourne. ZOMBIE was also the first self-directed artist to win an MTV Video Music Award. He’s also directed a special episode of CBS’s CSI: Miami, two Comedy Central specials, and uncharacteristically macabre commercials for various brands.
